    Duration: 15 minsWhat you will need:

    Instructions:

    1. Stick the Hand-washing Poster (page 3 of the activity pack) on the walls of your meeting place.

    2. Divide the Cubs into groups of three, and ensure each group has a copy of page 4 of the ‘Cub Chef Activity Badge’ pack in front of them.

    Grilling How?

    Grilling is usually done under a grill, or on a chargrill, over a

    barbecue or, even better for Cubs, a camp fire!

    What happens to the food?

    Unlike frying, if you grill meats such as sausages or a steak, you

    don’t need oil as the meat’s natural juices do the job. Some foods

    may need a little oil (fish or vegetables and some meats) but you

    use less than in frying.

    Eating a lot of grilled food is not very good for our health, just

    once in a while is fine.Watch out! It’s easy to burn food when you’re grilling it…

    Requirement 2

    Boiling, steaming, poaching, microwaving, roasting, grilling, frying, stewing. These are just a few different ways to cook foods. To earn their Cub Scout Chef Activity Badge, Cubs need to be aware of the advantages and disadvantages of these different methods.

    From pages 8 to 11 of their activity packs they will find information on different methods of cooking. For each method there are listed six possible advantages and disadvantages of particular cooking methods; Quick Cook, Slow Cook, Nutrients and Vitamins, Fatty, Hot Water and Hot Oil.

    Read the information on each cooking method aloud to the Cubs and ask them to tick the boxes that they think might be important if cooking in this way.

    Discuss with your leader the advantages and disadvantages of different methods of preparing and cooking food

    Requirement 3 Discuss the importance of a balanced diet

    Activity: Diet Discussion Duration: 20 mins

    What you will need:

    • A whiteboard (or similar) • Board pen • Copies of the Eatwell Plate on page 13 of the activity pack for

    each Cub • Completed food diaries for each Cub (see page 8) - you may

    also want to play the Funky Food Facts game first.

    Instructions:

    1. Divide the whiteboard into five sections. Write each of the five food groups in one of the sections. These are:

    • Fruit and vegetables • Milk and dairy foods • Starchy foods like rice, potatoes and pasta • Non-dairy sources of protein • Foods and drinks high in fat and sugar

    2. Invite each Cub to read out the different foods that they have logged in their diary. Write each food into the correct section of the board. Do it clearly enough so that the Cubs can see which food group each food belongs in.

    3. Now ask the Cubs to turn to the Eatwell Plate on page 13 of their activity packs. Ask them to use the foods written on the board to come up with their perfect meal. They will notice that their plate is divided into five, according to how much of each food they should eat.

    4. Ask them to draw their foods into the right section of the plate. Remind them that they can fill the plate, but they cannot draw any foods outside it, or in the wrong food
